To protect the health and safety of our community and staff, many Sutter County offices will be closed to the public starting March 20, 2020 until further notice.

ATV Patrol

Using All Terain Vehicles (ATV), the Sutter County Sheriff's Office routinely patrols approximately ten (10) miles of the Feather River bottoms during the spring, summer, and fall months. The area varies in width between the tow of the levee and the river's edge from a few feet in the Yuba City area to several hundred yards at Shanghai Bend Park. The river-bottoms are enjoyed by many citizen's such as swimmers, hikers, bank fishermen, horseback riders, off-road bicyclists, and campers. The terrain is diversified with woods, sandy beaches, and unimproved trails.

Supervised by Sergeant Glen Mercer, the goal of the ATV Patrol unit is to ensure the public's safety while they use the river bottoms. ATV deputies accomplish this by making their presence known while enforcing state laws and county ordinances, with public safety being their prime concern.
